    I just posted the truth about what's going on in the other thread. We don't have to segment/rebuild. Ya'll can read it and make up your own minds and go from there.

    Truck is good. I had the fuel cut-off solenoid go, took me a day to figure that one out.

    I am putting in the herculiner as I type (not literally) so I hope that turns out good. I had to cut corners and do that myself becuase I do not want to shell out another 500 bucks when a gallon is 70 bucks and then all i need is a case a beer.

    I want to dyno it so bad but I keep getting boost problems. I blew the gaskets out of the drivers side manifolds. I was boosting it for a launch and the number 7 cylinder gasket poped out, dam that was loud!

    That hurculiner stuff is great. I'm using it on the aftermarket suspension arms and skidpan on the cherokee, and it is some tough stuff!

    You blew out an intake gasket??

    WHAAT???

    How much boost did it take to do that??

    Bolts might have been loose, -eh?

    I hit 34 PSI on the gage, almost maxed out the gage. The bots didn't seem loose.
